Profile Great act from Nashville, Tennessee acted in the mid 80s with a big fan base in their hometown and the around area, but they only manage to released this EP in 1986 through Lamb Records in very limited numbers. The album is filled with challenging vocal melodies, changes in rhythm patterns and constantly evolving harmonies. No question, the end result is catchy-radio friendly rock, though very organic, baring various twists and turns “This Heart is Occupied” is direct, intense, melodic and memorable, a true AOR gem that holds its own even by contemporary standards.
